It’s internship time and here’s a great opportunity for penultimate students with the NSW Law Reform Commission.

The NSW Law Reform Commission (LRC) is taking applications for legal internships during the 2014-15 summer university vacation.

An internship at the LRC provides an opportunity to work closely with the Commissioners and law reform staff and contribute directly to the development of proposals for law reform. Depending on the reference this could mean undertaking research, contributing to drafting consultation documents, assisting with consultation processes, or helping draft reports. The LRC credits the contribution of interns in its published papers.

If this sounds interesting to you further information, including the time periods for the internship and application guidelines, can be found in the pamphlet below.

If you are someone who would enjoy studying in overseas locations (is there anyone who wouldn’t want to study overseas?) than this is for you.

The School of Law at Murdoch University in Western Australia are running two exciting undergraduate overseas programs during the Australian winter/European summer break in 2015. They are also offering a Graduate Certificate in Chinese Law during Semester 1, 2015.

The School of Law at Murdoch University welcomes applications to the above programs from Law students throughout Australia.
Here is some information regarding the locations available, if you want more information look to the links below

GENEVA: As part of Murdoch School of Law’s global reach, a human rights program of three units has been set up in Geneva, Switzerland. Geneva is synonymous with many of the world’s leading international organisations such as the United Nations, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Red Cross/Red Crescent, the International Commission of Jurists, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and many others. To address the needs of students in today’s global community, we are offering a unique program which focuses on international human rights law and offers Australian law students exposure to the diplomatic and legal fulcrum which is Geneva.

MACERATA, ITALY: Italy is at the centre of Europe – historically, culturally and legally – due to its vast influence in the formation of European and international law, via Roman law. Murdoch University’s School of Law is responding to the changing needs of its students and Australian society, in an increasingly globalised world by offering a three-unit Program centred on European law at the Università di Macerata, one of Europe’s oldest universities. Macerata is situated in the Marche region, a beautiful and unspoiled area of Italy approximately 250 kilometres north east of Rome.

CHINA: For postgraduate students, Murdoch offers a Graduate Certificate in Chinese Law where students will study at the East China University of Political Science and Law in Shanghai, China. Lectures will be delivered in English by qualified Chinese academics and lawyers who are proficient in English. The Program Director from Murdoch University will travel to China with students.
